Internship for Credit Program

Graduate students in the Business Administration (MBA) [Full-Time]  and specialized master’s degree programs may earn elective credit for internships that are related to their academic program and their career goals. These positions are full or part time and are usually with businesses, state or federal governments, or not-for-profit organizations. Students who elect to do an internship for credit will be assigned a faculty member who will guide and evaluate the students’ learning process.

To be eligible for an internship for credit, students must be in good academic standing (at least a 3.0 GPA) and have completed 12 credit hours of the required core coursework. Before students apply they must obtain appropriate signatures from their faculty and academic advisor (international students also need approval from International Student & Scholar Services), and provide a position description from the employer. Students are required to demonstrate what they have learned through written papers or reports. Specific requirements are set by the faculty in the syllabus. Students doing an internship for credit must work a minimum of 10 hours per week for at least 12 weeks. Students register after they are selected for a position by an employer and have all the necessary forms completed. A maximum of three internship credit hours, taken as elective credit, may be applied toward a student’s degree program requirements. Students will be graded on a pass/fail basis.
